Books and Slumber Parties

I attended a slumber party Friday night for a good friend. Yes, a slumber party. I’m still paying for it; no one my age should be up past 10:30. One way I know my age is pressing in on me is memory loss. A question posed at the party was what’s the best book you’ve read this year? I love questions like this, but my mind was BLANK!

I’ve jogged my memory the last 24 hours trying to remember what I’ve read this year. Since I keep a blog for the purpose of keeping an account, I’m going to try to list the books I’ve read in 2012 — more for myself and my poor memory than anything else. And, to answer the question, my “must read” for the year is the classic The Master Plan of Evangelism by Robert E. Coleman. Reading this book annually would not be a bad idea. Also, I posted The Last Segregated Hour. It is the first book I will be reading in 2013.

I would love for you to leave a comment with your favorite book this year!

  1. Around August of this year I started keeping track of the books I read in Evernote. It’s handy (when I remember) because I can do it from my phone. That has helped a little. 🙂 I’ve read a lot of good books this year, my absolute favorite, most life-changing book was “Furious Longing of God” by Brennan Manning. A couple of other good ones were “Love Does” by Bob Goff and “Passport through Darkness” by Kimberly Smith. I’ve got “Explicit Gospel” on my list to tackle sometime this year.

    Thanks for the post!

    • That’s a good idea, David. I may start keeping mine in Evernote. The book I heard most about in 2012 was “Love Does.” I may have to put it on my list for this year. Thanks!
